Awesome coffee percolator from Manning-Bowman, which had it's start in 1832.

Alcohol burner, with original label on bottom still mostly intact, has a wick that doesn't appear to have been used. (see photo with cap off)

All the components included on this metalware piece are in good working order ~ cap removal, lid seating, pot locks into place on stand, spigot/valve works, both caps for wick and adding fuel to the burner, the knob to adjust the flame moves the piece as intended, etc. It has been tested, there are no leaks. All is well... except, the basket is missing from this pot, but it could make an awesome teapot too if you don't have an alternate basket to use.

The pot is notched in 3 places on the bottom so it locks into the stand with a simple twist.

Maker's marks are shown in the photos with patent dates in 1906 and 1908 with Manning-Bowman working to provide average consumers with alternatives to the Sterling Silver wares that rarely saw the inside of the average American home.

Total Height of Pot and Stand approx. 11.5” Tall
Pot Diameter just over 5”
Pot Height is 6”
Stand is 5.5” tall

We do not attempt any cleaning of our found treasures, as we do not claim to be experts in restoration but know enough that some pieces are better left alone as some prefer not to take away the aged look, and we do not want to cause any harm to the pieces. Therefore, it is being sold as is and will leave any cleaning to the owner of it's new home.

A lovely item for the french country or shabby chic home decor or used to delight your guests for a great cup of coffee or tea.
